I AM 30 - it's the new 20 (or so they say)

12.8.2011 - That's the day I turned 30. Last year I dread to think I'll be going to be 3-series. Maybe cos most of the things in my list has yet to be accomplished and it scares me to bits. But come this date, I actually have crossed out many from my list and happy to say, turning 30 aint that bad after all. Plus, they say it's the new 20. I FEEL GREAT :)

2011 has been a good year so far. Maybe a little mishaps here n there but overall, it's been a good year. Many of my prayers have been answered and Allah has shown me many signs in order for me to make certain decisions. I hear Him more now than ever before. And I accepted a lot of things as fate and at ease with myself. Alhamdulillah.

Since I hardly update my blog, mind my sudden interest in writing today. On my bday, I have my family with me (except my lil sis, but she's in KK, so it's excuseable..yet still close in my heart) and this year, I have baby E in my life. No words can describe the feeling I have right now. Being a mother scares me. I myself am not the perfect daughter and disappoints my parents quite a bit. I know the feeling and I hope my lil girl will never feel sad ever. I want to be her protector - through every rain, storm and be with her through all the sunshines and rainbows. What if I cant be that perfect Mom that I want to be?

Oops lari topic. Yeah well, I'm old now, whaddaya expect...haha...

This year, Mom gave me beautiful pearls and purple roses (my fav!) aunt pun bagi hadiah, my bro pun beli I kinda forget my age for a minute there! Hope I will still get gifts when I turn 40 (over tak my request? hehe). Hubby's getting me something special soon, cant tell you all yet. But the best gift this year is from precious baby E :) I feel so blessed to be with my loved ones on my bday...I hope there will be many more years to come to celebrate with my family. I can't imagine life without them.

Before I put u all to sleep, I better pen off now. HAPPY BDAY TO ME:) Alhamdullilah I am still alive at the age of 30 :) And here's the first pic of me, hubs and baby E. Selalu gbr baby or, baby with me or hubby...hehe

So they say 30 is the new 20, but do I still pass for 20's look? Maybe I should try the usual "Guess my age" question to a stranger and then I'll know! haha.....ok, ok...going off for real now....ciaoooooo!

Sista in da house

Hey, who said I am gonna talk about biz all the time? ;)

Saja je feel like saying a word or two before I go off to sleep. My sis in law, aka Adik, stayed with me for 4 months during her practical training in KL. She just completed her training and she is now back in Jitra, Kedah. And I am one of those people who needs time to fine tune myself to changes. The house suddenly feels quiet pulak. hehe. 

I'll share some happy moments photos :)

And yang paling I'll miss is all the yummy food Adik masak...can I blame the extra kilos on her? hahaha. My favourite is cucur yg sgt yummy...I cannot stop munching this!


 Adik, Kak Emma wish you all the best in your future undertakings. Perjalanan masih panjang...untuk capai kejayaan, usaha mesti ada dan keep on moving up the ladder of success. Cintan cintun akan datang bila tiba masanya, takyah nak risau ok :)

Love n miss u loads! InsyaAllah kita jumpa lagi soon!

The A-Z of "my dissapearence"

OK, has been over a month I havent updated my blog. Walaupun followers yang tak seberapa, tapi ramai yang dok tanye and  I wont lie...the reason is I am just pure lazy. I actually have a lot to say but lately I am disappointed in a few things, that I decided rather to just let myself cool down before I write something I might regret. A friend of mine told me, that's the whole reason I should blog, it's a place where you can speak your mind! So here I am again after menyepi diri for some time.

In the past month, many events took place. Kalau rajin, nanti I upload gambarlah...

But do you wanna know what runs through my psycho mind? Or the happenings for the past 1 month? Here goes.......

a) Hubby went for Umrah leaving me lonely for 10 days
b) Me and my family attended wedding of my cousin, Yang Azizah in Kuantan. It was like a reunion, stayed at D'Embassy and felt something missing without my other half with me (cos he's in Makkah at the time)
c) Discovered all married men and women flirts no matter how good hubby/wifey they are
d) Reunion with my two besties masa kerja Starbucks, Zalee and Fairuz
e) Belated honeymoon celebration with hubby in Cherating and had a romantika time

i) Pegi tengok Bruno Mars gilerrs!
j) Celebrated Mom's u Mummy :)
k) Learn to stop finding for answers, instead turn to Allah and he will show me the way
l) Celebrated Aunt, Alang's bday. Watched Rio together with Alang and Cubi and realized cartoons aint that bad after all.
m) Learn how to keep anger in and smile when Giant irritates me to the max
n) Swim 3 times a week and now Gavin and Shasha calls me "Emma from the sea"
o)  Baru tahu that there are cute guys (gay or not, I'm not sure) goes to my condo's gym
p)  Know the existence of buah zuriat and how hard it is to peel it
q) Abu the cat is madly in love with me, he comes to me if I kenyit mata (if only that works with Bradley Cooper)
r) Hubby is jealous of Abu. I am so in demand :p
s) My sis in law's cooking is better than me (or so he makes me feel like it)
t) Erin, my team mate, has split personality (hehe)
u) Getting pregnant is easy for some, but hard for me.
v) Anuar Zain is so hot! Why is he gay! I love "Sedetik Lebih" to bits
w) I hate the thought of me turning 30 this year!
x) Money can actually buy people
y) I love my family to bits...I hope I can bring them for an expensive holiday end of this year...
z) My hubby pampers me, and I love every moment together with him.

Hey, are you all asleep already? So now that I shared with you my post will just kickoff from here..I am back, peeps! I love writing...I may just pen down anything I can think of off for my own pleasure and for your entertainment maybe. Nites! :)

Coffee to the rescue :)

I don’t have a problem with caffeine. 
I have a problem without caffeine.
Thank you Nina for the caffeine session :p

This week has been challenging, I guess in business there are ups and downs. I wouldn't say it sucks, I guess it's just rather disappointing when things doesn't go as planned. I'll get over it. 

Thank you Vanilla Latte, you saved the day! 
(and great friends and business partners who are willing to listen to me crap and motivate me)

Nothing can bring me down, I am strong and the rest of the week will be better, insya-Allah. 

I have Diamond Night to attend on Saturday...yippee! Though many of my business partners can't make it, it's still going to be a blast (Fifi, I think we need to shop!)....time to shop to look extra HOT! :)

back to healthy lifestyle, Emma!

OK, I admit, I have put on weight. Tiap kali jumpa customer, tiap kali calories pun bertambah. Snacks, coffee, fastfood...sangat tidak healthy! And exercise? I haven't gone jogging as often as I used to! Err, cos I am just too busy! Really! (I know u guys are going "Alasan!")

Cubi, can we start jogging again? I need a jogging partner to keep me motivated on weekends...else I akan zzzzzzzzz on weekend mornings :p 


Hubby bought me new pair of shoes cos I told him my running shoes dah koyak which made my kaki sakit...haha (really!)

Boleh kira the number of times I pakai sejak beli :p

He even dragged himself out to jog (he loves team sports ie futsal, bola sepak) just to motivate me, but I found other excuses...hehe

Penat ke yang oi? :p

But I am going to make jogging my routine again...I have 4 weddings coming up (paling dekat is in March...sempat ke?) and I need to look good! Baju kebaya semua dah tempah, I even suruh tailor buat a few inches smaller...kalau tak lose a few inches, habislah i! 

My last charity run was in November, and ever since I havent joined any runs...not that I'm a runner, but if I have and event as such, lagi semangat I nak train myself...

From left: Sarcastic sista, me, and Nazi Trainer
I also need:
a) my sista to give me sarcastic remarks on my weight into piss me off so that I will actually jog again
b) I need to get Nazi trainer, Shakir for training sessions (Shasha, are u with me on this?)
c) Nazi diet instructor, Amira to marah me each time I nak minum teh tarik or eat anything with oil!

 Jogging or any type of exercises are good for you, but jangan lupa pakai Premium Beautiful sekali...bagi u shape and no more menggeleber....u will look GORGEOUS! 

Plus, detox semua yg merosakkan badan tu with'll lose weight faster! 

With great body, of cos you will look more confident!


LACTOLITE or MAHARANI (your choice)

In Memory of Dato' Adnan Mohd Tahir

"Good men must die, but death cannot kill their names"

I just feel like saying a word or two about a wonderful and inspirational man who once cross my path. Last year, as I was going through adoption sites to find out more on parents who have adopted (for my future options), I came across many articles on an organization called OrphanCARE. I dropped an email to the President's inbox to ask more about it. That's how I knew the late Dato' Adnan Mohd Tahir. Me and hubby then met him and his wife, and he was so enthusiastic and passionate when speaking of OrphanCARE and Viva Palestina.

   Dato' Adnan Mohd Tahir passed away last Saturday, on 12th February 2011, leaving his wife Datin Elya Lim Abdullah and three children. Without realizing it, tears roll down my cheeks when I heard the news. I read his status message on FB "Alhamdulillah, Hosni Mubarak has resigned. Congratulations to all Egyptians! May Egypt rise again as the centre of the Arabs, insyaAllah" at about 12midnight and a few hours later, he passed away.

Throughout my involvement with OrphanCARE, he was very passionate of their cause and he had so many ideas to contribute. Baby hatch was made possible by his great leadership in OrphanCARE. Many babies are now saved from being abandoned and many children are given homes. 
I remembered him telling me that he wanted every child in the orphanages to have a proper home and family. He said if we don't save the children from orphanages, when they turn 18, what will happen to them? I believe in the organization's mission and cause however due to personal commitments, I wasn't able to commit to the organization for long, but if I had a chance to work with any organization, it will definitely be under someone with his attributes; a true leader, sincere, hardworking and someone I have very high respect for.

He was such a father figure who pushed me to be the best I could be as he saw the potential in me. When I was involved with OrphanCARE, I only managed to finish one article as he requested, and he praised me for it. I promised him I will find time to write another one  soon, but never did I imagine the next one will be about him. 
Many high profile people would only do charity for the name and glamour, but he is one man I know who does charity from his heart. He could've have contributed more if he was still with us today, but Allah loves him more.

Moga roh arwah dilimpahkan rahmat & di tempatkan di golongan org2 yg beriman & beramal soleh. Al Fatihah ...
